My leghorn chicken has a swollen foot pad. I was thinking it was bumblefoot but she has no hard core or spot on her foot. I know she doesn’t have leg mights. Her foot has been swollen for over a month. I soaked it in episom salt everyday for over a week and kept really clean. Her leg seems to be swelling now also not all the way up but a little up. Any suggestions and the vet is out I have no vet that sees chickens. I have called all over looking and everyone laughs at me when I ask if they see chickens. Oh she is also about 1 and a half years old

In your picture I can see that she must have stepped on something like a thorn or similar that got stuck right in the middle of her foot pad. If you look very close, you might even see the tip of it still sticking out a bit.

I see it to. That can cause bumble inside the foot to.

I did read that article before and I have done bumblefoot surgery on other girls in the flock but they clearly had a hard spot on foot to remove. My poor leghorn does not. I opened the spot up that was pointed out in picture and cut it in a circular area and did not find anything that looked like the other bumblefoot I removed in past but I cut away some tissue sprayed with Microcyn ah put antibiotics cream on and wrapped it. If this works how long do you think it will take before I see results. The other bumblefoot I dealt with did not swell like this . Thanks
